West Hill Wasps Under-8s net win double

West Hill Wasps Under-8s were in action against Crediton Youth and Moors Madrid with coach Lee Perkins back having missed the previous weekend’s matches.
First up, against Crediton, Wasps began brightly and early chances were created, and spurned, by Charlie Williams and Sam Smart. Harry Murphy, playing some of his best football of the season on the left wing, was a constant thorn in the opposition’s side with some darting runs and precision passing. It was from one such pass that the ball found Smart and he weaved his way down the wing before crossing for Henry Fenner to open the scoring.
Crediton hit straight back, but found Wasps’ glovesman Jake Dunstan in terrific form, the goalkeeper making a couple of outstanding saves.
At the other end of the pitch Noah Clifton saw a goal-bound shot well saved by the Crediton glovesman.
After the break, and having made changes, Evan Perkins netted to double the lead. Crediton hit back and did hit the bar late on, but the 2-1 success was no more than Wasps deserved.

Half-time changes were made by Wasps, but the flow of their game did not change.
Harry Murphy caused problems with his pace and guile Annabel Bonner-Morris contributed plenty some great passes and runs. However, it was Madrid who scored next to make it 3-2.
More changes were made by Wasps Joshua Jones, not long after rejoining the action, provided the assist for a Sam Smart goal to round off the scoring and give Wasps a 4-2 victory.
It proved to be another great day for the team with some fantastic teamwork and individual brilliance. The Player of the Week award went to Harry Murphy for his stand-out shift that saw him make some fantastic runs, cutting and slicing through the oppositions defence.
